Giants vs. Royals: Game 6 Score and Twitter Reaction from 2014 World Series

For the second time this World Series, the Kansas City Royals' bats awoke from a Madison Bumgarner-induced slumber in impressive fashion. Revitalized by a return home to Kauffman Stadium, Ned Yost's squad scored seven runs in the second inning and cruised to a 10-0 win over the San Francisco Giants, forcing a decisive Game 7 on Wednesday night. As the Royals have proved all season, it doesn't take immense power to produce this kind of offensive outburst. They hit just one solo home run in the seventh but relentlessly bombarded San Francisco with six doubles and a total of 15 hits, joining the 2001 Arizona Diamondbacks in the World Series record book by the third inning: That meant rookie Yordano Ventura had the rare experience of pitching in a do-or-die game with essentially no pressure. Spotted the early seven-run advantage, the 23-year-old tossed seven scoreless innings, striking out four and allowing just three ...


Jose Canseco Accidentally Shoots Self in the Hand at Vegas Home

Six-time MLB All-Star Jose Canseco accidentally shot himself in the hand on Tuesday afternoon at his Las Vegas residence and is recovering at a hospital in the area. Spencer Lubitz of KTNV in Las Vegas added specifics about Canseco's condition: Natalie Cullen of CBS 8 News Now received confirmation through police that an accidental shooting had occurred at Canseco's home. Canseco's daughter Josie tweeted an update on her dad's status: Canseco, 50, enjoyed many of the best years of his career with the Oakland Athletics, winning an American League MVP award in 1988 and his first of two World Series titles in 1989. The slugger hit 462 total home runs but discredited the power element of his game to a degree by publicly admitting to extensive steroid use.Read more MLB news on BleacherReport.com

Trout took home the Hank Aaron Award for the American League's best offensive player, with Stanton representing the National League, per Major League Baseball.

Giants vs. Royals: Game 1 Score and Twitter Reaction from 2014 World Series

The Kansas City Royals entered Game 1 of the World Series with eight consecutive 2014 postseason wins, scoring more than five runs per ballgame during that stretch. It had been one of the most memorable postseason runs in recent memory. But Madison Bumgarner had plans of extending his own streak. The San Francisco Giants ace allowed one run, three hits and one walk in seven innings, powering Bruce Bochy's squad to a 7-1 series-opening win. It marks his third win in as many World Series starts. Before allowing a home run to Salvador Perez in the seventh inning, Bumgarner ran a pair of astounding scoreless innings streaks a bit further, as noted by ESPN Stats & Info and ESPN's Buster Olney: The Mercury News' Alex Pavlovic provided an updated look at the 25-year-old's unbelievable career numbers in the Fall Classic: It took San Francisco just one inning to give Bumgarner the insurance he needed.

World Series 2014: Bold Predictions for Giants vs. Royals Showdown

If there is one thing the 2014 MLB playoffs have accomplished, it is reinforcing the idea that anything can happen. The fact that the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals are meeting in the World Series is proof of that.

Both teams have gotten to this point through different means, but they have certainly earned it. Based on the manner in which this postseason has played out, there isn't too much that would shock baseball fans at this point.

MLB Playoff Schedule 2014: Complete World Series Slate and Predictions

The Kansas City Royals have captured the imagination of every sports fan who's spent years cheering for a team that's often struggled to compete.
